Velocity- Program for MS Boys - Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Vermont is proud to announce that Velocity is coming to CBMS once again this Spring! The goals of the program are:
  • To encourage a healthy, active lifestyle for Middle School boys.
  • To give boys an opportunity to try new fitness activities in a non-competitive, boys-only setting 
  • To help boys build confidence and communication skills, as they bond with mentors and other participants 
By creating six different activity modules, each with a corresponding lesson, we will give boys a chance to try out an activity without making a major commitment to it. Past activities include mountain biking, break-dancing, fencing, ropes course adventures, frisbee golf, orienteering, hiking and we’re always looking for new activities.  It is our goal to help each boy find at least one activity he really enjoys, and continue with it, remaining active in the future.
The program will run on Thursdays from 2:30-4:30, beginning on May 1st with a session on break dancing. The program costs $60 per child, and some scholarship money may be available upon request.  Checks should be made to "Velocity BCBSVT".  The permission form can be found by clicking here, and we are limited to 8 participants in this program- the first 8 filled out permission forms we receive in the CBMS office take those spots.  Note that the CBMS office will be open during Spring Break.  Contact Dan Gratton, the CBMS Velocity coordinator, to learn more - or 244-6100 x122.

Michael Bove Wins Waterbury Ice Out Raffle – OM Fundraising Continues  Michael Bove of Waterbury Center (dad to a CBMS 7th grade OMer) is the winner of the first Waterbury Ice Out 50-50 raffle. Bove guessed the ice on the Waterbury Pool would melt April 14 at 6 p.m. That was the closest prediction to 7:10 p.m. when the wooden pallet tipped just enough for the 50-pound brick to slip off and sink to the bottom of the deep end.
Bove gets a $350 cash prize. The remaining $350 goes to benefit the Odyssey of the Mind program at CBMS and Thatcher Brook.  Three of the creative problem-solving teams of 4th through 7th graders are heading to Iowa State University for the OM World Finals competition in late May. Fundraising is helping pay half their trip costs.
The OM program thanks Waterbury Parks and Recreation for the use of the pool for this event, Pack and Send Plus for discounted printing services, and all of the local businesses who helped sell Ice Out tickets: Aubuchon Hardware, Bargain Boutique, Billings Mobil, Bridgeside Books, Crossroads Deli, Waterbury True Value Hardware, Family Physical Therapy.
The teams are making progress toward their fundraising goal but there’s still a way to go. For updates, check out their Facebook page: “Waterbury Duxbury Vt. Odyssey of the Mind.” They have an online donation site at and a spring plant/bulb/seed sale with Flowerpower at Gardener’s Supply online.
